A “good chew” helps keep your pet’s teeth clean, promotes gum strength and health and helps to reduce stress.

SAFETY can never be stressed enough!  While some dogs are slow and methodical chewers, others can be quite aggressive when greeted with such a treat. It is always important to remember that you MUST supervise your dog when utilizing this, or any kind, of chew.

We keep our Alfie in the same room with us and watch him as he slowly chews and softens and ingests his chew. When it gets too small, possibly representing a choking hazard, we take it away and toss it out. In that way, we do not need to worry about him ingesting a large piece.

BULLY STICKS 101 . . .
All Bully Sticks are not created equal.
The first thing to consider when purchasing bully sticks is the country of origin. Most of the bully sticks found in major pet stores are from India or other parts of the world outside of the USA. The living conditions of people and livestock in these countries is less than appealing. We sell product from free-ranging American cattle that are given NO hormones, NO antibiotics, and NO steroids, and who graze freely on open, wild grass fields. 

Another difference between bully sticks on the marketplace is whether or not they are vertically drained and then baked. It is much cheaper to sun dry bully sticks and other natural treats, but it is much riskier as potential diseases and bugs can enter the product much more easily. All of our treats and chews are baked—which is more expensive—but this allows for the quality of the product to remain quite high. 

All-Natural Bully Sticks are truly different. Most of the bully sticks on the market are irradiated—ours are not. This is due to the fact that irradiation actually destroys nutrients and creates new chemicals in food (learn more about irradiation here). The bully sticks we carry are also not smoked, which adds a process and ingredients that we believe are just not healthy for our dogs. The problem is, most businesses fail to mention if their sticks are smoked or not. Smoked sticks can tend to look prettier and even be thicker; however, their quality is definitely lacking.

All you have to do is ask. We are amazed at how afraid folks are to ask businesses about their products before making a purchase. Remember, companies want to make a sale and do not always mention what is done to bully sticks. They leave out the fact that they may be smoked, that the animals had received antibiotics and hormones, they were subjected to irradiation, or that insecticides & chemical fertilizers were utilized in the raising of the cattle, etc.

Don't be fooled by the price. You will see Bully Sticks selling for $3 to $12 each, thicker and larger product tending to fetch more. However, product from companies that utilize questionable practices is clearly not worth the same as product such as that which we are selling, which is 100% free-range, natural, irradiation-free, antibiotic-free, growth hormone-free, etc. The problem is that many companies are selling poor-quality product at ridiculous prices, and folks are being fooled into believing that they are getting something good for their dogs. And, that is the saddest part of this equation.

We have to admit that the price tag on Bravo products is high, but they are honestly the very best you can buy. Sometimes feeding something to your dog of high quality is *priceless*. Bravo is made with all USDA inspected and approved meats in a USDA inspected and certified facility that primarily cuts and processes meats for restaurant and institutional (schools, etc.) use. So, Bravo is produced under all the same processing regulations that apply to human food products. Bravo does not send their products out to middlemen processors, so guaranteeing total quality control. Bravo's parent company began in the meat business in 1942, providing high quality meats for restaurant use. Their products are made with the same high quality, USDA inspected and approved HUMAN GRADE meats, in their own USDA Certified facility, under the same processing regulations, that apply to human food products.

It’s not news to anyone that there have been product recalls over the past few years, both on the human side and the pet side of the food chain. So, Bravo has done the following. In April of 2010, they completed a two-year review by the USDA which raised their plant grade from USDA Inspected to USDA Certified, one of the few raw diet manufacturers in the US to achieve this standard. Quality controls and safety practices are so strict that they are authorized to process meat for both pet and human consumption in the same plant. In addition, every step of the manufacturing and distribution process is carefully monitored to ensure the product is properly transported and stored.
 



BRAVO! Free-Range Grass Fed USDA Approved Odor-Free 12" Thick Bully Sticks  


5-Stick Price: $59.95

We have tried a variety of different companies' bully sticks, but love Bravo's the most. The price is extreme, but honestly, they really are exceptional. Our Golden Alfie is quite the aggressive chewer, but these sticks really make him work. And, they last MUCH longer than any other brand we've tried.

Bully Sticks are a great way to give dogs something to chew on that they'll love and is great for them too. They are 100% beef, meaning your dog can actually safely digest them, unlike that of ingesting chunks of chemically-processed beef hide from rawhide-type chews.

Bravo Bully Sticks are made from bulls, not steer parts, so they are noticeably larger and provide a long satisfying, healthy all-natural chew. Bravo produces human grade bullies from grass-fed bulls and dry roasts them in their USDA Certified plant, so they can control for quality, source, size, and freshness. Because these super premium Bully Sticks from Bravo are dried rather than smoked, they contain no chemical additives, no smoke flavoring, and no preservatives. Because of this preparation process, they are truly odor-free.

Bravo Bully Sticks are a healthier, safer more digestible alternative to rawhide chews. They do not leave stains on furniture or carpets and they will not splinter, or break up when chewed.

Remember, this is a natural product and each bully stick is therefore slightly unique in both size, shape, and weight. But, we know you will not be disappointed as they have a hefty look all their own. They are also very stable products when kept in a cool and dry environment with exposure to air. They can also be frozen for prolonged storage.

Bravo All Natural Dry Roasted Duck Feet 
Bravo all natural hormone free, antibiotic free, all natural dry roasted duck feet are a little funky. That's because they are honestly duck feet! When you are finished cringing, please learn more about why these treats are fabulous. The truth is, each duck foot is an amazing treat which is adored by our furry companions, whether dog or cat. both dogs and cats alike. They measure about four to five inches long and one-and-a-half inches wide.

If you didn't read the label on the treat bag, you could have difficulty figuring out what they are. There are no nails on the feet, which makes them a little easier to handle.

Golden Alfie loves these but we have a 20-year-old kitty so we haven't been able to test her desire for them. We've read that with kitties, you may want to soak the foot in hot water for about 10 minutes. This will soften it enough to still allow the kitty's teeth a good workout (this can also be done with small dogs).

Each resealable package contains between 10 and 12 duck feet and like all Bravo products, nothing has been added and nothing has been taken away. These are, simply, duck feet. The 5-ounce bag contains 9 to 12 duck feet. Price: $12.75
